Bennett Jones is acting for ATCO Ltd. in a potential world-scale hydrogen project in Alberta. ATCO is collaborating with Suncor Energy Inc. on early stage design and engineering for a potential clean hydrogen project near Fort Saskatchewan.
The proposed project would produce more than 300,000 tonnes per year of clean hydrogen using advanced technology to capture more than 90 percent of the emissions generated in the hydrogen production process. Approximately 65 percent of the produced clean hydrogen would be used in refining processes and cogeneration of steam and electricity at the Suncor Edmonton Refinery, reducing refinery emissions by up to 60 percent. Approximately 20 percent of the produced clean hydrogen could be used in the Alberta natural gas grid to further reduce emissions.
Additional highlights and details on the project are available on ATCO's website.
